Make her Stop Moaning - Power Steering Pump TSB DIY

After I replaced my alternator, my power steering started moaning and groaning especially when cold. I figured that it was because I was manhandling the power steering pump to get the belt back on. So I did some research and found the HondaTSB 07-086. I did the job which took all of 5 minutes, and the power steering pump finally shut the hell up. Cost is around $5.00 for the parts.

The TSB is for all 7th Generation V6 Accords


Parts and Tools Needed.
1. O-ring - Honda Part Number P/N 08206-9002
2. Genuine Honda Power Steering Fluid - H/C 3747284
3. Shop Towel
4. 10mm wrench
5. Bottle of Corona Extra and lime wedge (Optional)


Here is the O-Ring.



The Power Steering Fluid



Here is the inlet joint bolt you will be removing




Step 1.
Place shop towel under the inlet joint to catch the fluid that will come out when you remove the joint.



2. Use 10mm wrench to remove bolt from inlet joint



3. Separate the coupler



4. Remove old O-Ring from the inlet hole. My old one was black and the new one was red.





5. Install the new O-ring to the inlet hose coupler




6. Reinstall the joint and tighten the bolt.

7. Check the power steering fluid level and add fluid if necessary.

8. Start the engine and turn the steering wheel lock to lock to verify that the noise is gone.

9. Stop engine and check power steering fluid again.

10. Move on to doing more fun things to your car..... like installing Hybrid mirrors or getting your mud guards painted body color.

11. Install lime to neck of Corona bottle as shown, if you have not done so already.

when i turning my steering wheel all the way to the right, and then go in reverse, i get some weird "creaking" sounds. it doesnt happen when my steering wheel is turned to the left, nor does it ever happen when i am going forward. and this is intermittent too, its happened in cold and hot weather, at random times. its not a big deal so i havent taken it to a mechanic, but anyone have any ideas?

i dont think you ever need to drain and fill on power steering fluid for pretty much the life of the car.

I would replace the O ring if you notice a buildup of dirt and grime around where the coupling is, indicating a seal that needs to be replaced.

i also have the same issue...although mine only makes that noise when i turn to the left...never did get it checked out by the dealer, but im so used to it now, i hardly notice....

BTW...thanks to the OP...this was a great DIY..I will do this over the weekend, my car has been moaning since i bought it back in 2006. Dealer never knew where the sound was coming from...

hey bro, well i did the O ring today. Just the one thats in the OP, and the noise went away. but i still have air bubbles in the fluid, so im gonna try to find time to change the other O ring and see what happens.

ok, status update. i didnt change the other ring yet, but last night i read over my repair manual, and i didnt bleed the system by "turning it lock to lock several times to get the air out of the system". i had only done it one time. so this morning i went and did what it said to do, no more air bubbles in the fluid, and no more creaking noise. im happy now.
